Seattle Seahawks sign fullback Daniel Marx
SEATTLE, Wash. — After officially releasing wide receiver Tanner McEvoy, the Seattle Seahawks used their open roster spot to sign former Stanford fullback Daniel Marx.
Marx, 22, signed with the Atlanta Falcons after going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was released late last month.
Marx played in 14 games in his senior year at Stanford, although he only rushed once and had three receptions. His primary role was paving the rushing lanes for Bryce Love’s 2,118 yard season.
Marx joins Tre Madden as the only other fullback on Seattle’s roster. The Seahawks had both Jalston Fowler and Khalid Hill on the roster earlier in the summer, but released both. Hill passed through waivers and was placed on the injured reserve.
Madden did not suit up for last Friday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings.
With Marx now in the mix, the Seahawks have yet another position battle brewing heading into the final preseason game of the year.
